In 1950s Scotland, everything is changing for the Grace girls . . .
Heather and Kirsty Grace are sisters growing up in Rowanhill, near Glasgow. Heather has everything that should make her happy – a steady job, good friends and a boyfriend who wants to marry her. Why then does she long to escape her small town and find love and excitement among the bright lights of the city?
Kirsty, two years younger, also yearns for a different kind of life; at night she sings with a band in church halls and clubs. When a charismatic Irishman, Larry Delaney, spots her singing and becomes her manager, Heather wonders whether Larry has his sights set on more than just Kirsty’s singing talents . . .
